A LONG-OVERDUE REBUKE OF ANTI-SEMITISM

The United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) has, for many years, been an overtly anti-Semitic part of the United Nations – hardly out of step, it should be noted, with the rest of the United Nations. And finally, the United States – which largely funds this anti-Semitic entity – is doing something about it. From Adam Kredo’s extremely important article at...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Chris Wallace, Fox News Channel host and frequent critic of President Trump.

REMEMBER WHEN OBAMA GAVE US 5% GDP GROWTH?

Maybe you recall that the last time GDP growth for one quarter was higher than the current 4.1% was in 2014 – when, under President Obama, it hit 5%. Does that mean the GDP performance being hailed by President Trump’ is a pale shadow of what that economic genius, Barack Obama gave us?

THE DEFINITION OF GRUDGING CREDIT

Want to see a CNN article that gives credit to President Trump for a positive accomplishment? Believe it or not (and I don’t blame anyone who is skeptical, one such article, written by Stephen Collinson, has just been published.

HOW BIASED ARE MEDIA AGAINST TRUMP?

Here’s one of the many answers – courtesy of Curtis Houck’s article at newsbusters.org: Late Thursday into early Friday morning, the North Koreans handed over what purported to be remains of U.S. soldiers who went Missing In Action (MIA) during the Korean War.

NOW IT’S MOONVES. WHO’S NEXT?

Never in a million years would I expect that Ronan Farrow would help out President Donald Trump big-time. But  Farrow’s just-published article in The New Yorker, nailing CBS mega-honcho Les Moonves, he has done just that. Here are the first two paragraphs: In recent months, Moonves has become a prominent voice in Hollywood’s #MeToo movement. In December, he helped found the Commission on...

CUOMO’S TRUMP TAPE RATINGS FIZZLE

How enraptured is the country over the possibility that Donald Trump discussed, maybe paid, hush money to a former Playboy playmate – who was happy to take it, let’s not forget? Well, the playing of that tape was supposed to boom up the ratings of Chris Cuomo’s 9:00PM show on CNN, maybe even get it in the ballpark with his competition, Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow. How did...

KOREA: THE FIRST 55

The first 55 remains of U.S. soldiers killed during the Korean war have been sent from kim jung-un’s North Korea to the United States.  Here are the photos.

THE DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PARTY (CONT.)

From Joseph Curley’s commentary for the Washington Times:  In a new poll conducted by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, just 33 percent of those surveyed think the Democratic Party is “in the mainstream.” More than half (56 percent) consider them out of step. Just two years ago in 2016, those numbers were far different: 48 percent mainstream, 42 percent out. That means the...

TRUMP’S GDP PREDICTION

This past quarter’s GDP will be announced at 8:30 this morning – less than two hours from when I am posting this blog. The consensus figure seems to fall in the 4.0% – 4.5% range.  That would be excellent – something for President Trump and Republicans to be bragging about. But Mr. Trump suggested, just yesterday, that it could be about 5%. If Mr. Trump knows something we...

WHEN THE LEFT CONSIDERS A BORDER WALL ACCEPTABLE

You can’t make this stuff up…. …..uh, let me amend that.  Actually, you can.  But with the far left behaving as they do, why bother? From Will Racke’s article at dailycaller.com: The anti-borders activists camped outside a federal government office in Portland may detest President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, but they’ve adopted a major one — building a...
